    Alright that time again... need to start looking for next project.

    Not super confident on this one, haven't run too much numbers yet.. Just playing around with floor plan. 140sqm of living reckon that warrants a 2nd bathroom. Laundry is huge. Could push for 4th bedroom but don't think it will flow that well. Master off living not ideal.

    More I think about it house setup so awkward with no real access to the yard... its on 600sqm block. But pretty much entire backyard wasted.

    I'm not capable and always hesitant to give feedback on this type of question because I haven't done any development DD on it. Excited to see how it progresses though :D



    The Queen of floor plans will appear soon enough.

    Is this a reno of an existing floor plate? (Just notice they all have the same perimeter.)

    Personally prefer the kitchen....especially the kitchen sink situated next to a window.

    I think you want the kitchen and casual dining etc orientated to the back, and secondary bedrooms at the front.

    Consider changing the annotated doors to French doors to connect to the back verandah / backyard.

    My guess is the first, the second has an added en-suite.

    @Brady is this your usual strategy, to Reno and flip for a profit?

    Taking no feasibility, no budget, no load bearing, no location of water lines walls into account I'd do something like this.
    I've attempted to keep kitchen, master, ensuite where it is and put the minor bedrooms into the old family room area (PS that is robes between them). Then knock out the old bedrooms and voila flow to the outside

    Admittedly the new family room is a dorky shape but could be improved certainly by dividing it up a little so it's not 6m wide - a small study etc could fit into there etc

    Version 2
    Gave you a scullery and put the bathroom where there probably is easy access to water pipes.

    140sqm house with scullery and mudroom and a study nook :)

    I didn't like Brady's configurations at all... sorry :)

    Advantage of having the Living at the top right area is that you can easily connect to the pergola and Verandah making a huge entertaining area.
    I never like the toilet facing the kitchen. Westminister has also closed it off.

    Can this small change work slightly better and saving space?

    I closed it off as there would be a common use toilet with the minor bedrooms and the main bathroom. I just didn't draw it but left enough space there with either of my versions

    However the old bathroom would be big enough to be just the ensuite and have the toilet remain a common use toilet for kids/guests.

    Please don’t have the toilet opening on to the living room - noise and smells.
    Embarrassing when guests are present.

    Moving rooms around to give access to Verandah and Pergola.

    Access to B3 is a bit away but both B2 & B3 are bigger. Lots of storage room. Wasted walking space is limited.
    Combined Lounge, Dining and family are a bit smaller but now has access to outdoor which makes it bigger.

    Doesn't make sense to walk through a kitchen and another room to get to a bedroom. A hallway is better.

    You are right.
    Everything has a trade-off. It all depends on what's important to the owner.

    Another version with 4 bed rooms.. lack storage though :)

    First thing I'd probably want to know/investigate is what is common/acceptable/A bonus in the immediate area. Then redesign my floor plan based on that feedback and what my budget will allow without blowing the feaso.
